After 320,000 kilometers, the battery of the Tesla Model S car degraded only 6%

Tesloop, a California company that offers transportation services by electric Tesla car, began operations with Tesla Model S in July 2015, which has traveled 200,000 miles (more than 320,000 km) these days. Tesloop began transporting customers from Los Angeles to Las Vegas, and today is expanding its connections and routes and can provide reliable first-hand vehicle information.
The Techcrunch website contacted a Tesloop employee regarding the car. Employee Rahul Sonnad explained that most of the kilometers were covered on the highway, in autopilot mode, and Tesla assures that this does not play any role. Sonnad stated that the Model S battery degraded only six percent, with daily charging to full capacity, while Tesla’s recommended default value is 90%.
However, there were some problems with the vehicle. First, after 30,000 miles, the car informed Tesla of the low engine power. Tesla employees quickly arrived and replaced the front engine.
Another interesting problem occurred after 200,000 miles. The range indicator incorrectly predicted the remaining miles, causing the car to shut down shortly before the miles expired. Tesla explained that this is due to a change in the state of the chemicals in the battery caused by the high mileage. The problem could be solved by updating the car software, which would not be ready for several months, so Tesla solved the problem by replacing the battery and gave us an insight into the loss of capacity after 200 thousand miles.
The only cost of ownership for Tesloop was $ 190 to replace the 12-volt battery and approximately $ 2,500 in tire costs, while Tesla’s eight-year warranty covered everything else. Sonnad pointed out that Tesloop didn’t even have to change brakes after 200,000 miles.
